Clay Shaw and 1948 Play Memorial

I recently received some information on Clay Shaw's attempt to have his 1948 full-length play, Memorial, made into a film. The studio synopsis and its evaluation of the play were included. This is the play that many gossiped had to do with a returning soldier planning to assassinate a President!

True or no? Stay tuned.
